STATE TEACHERS’ CONVENTION
There were full 4,000 teachers present at the
More than three-fourths of those present were
women. This may account for many compliments
showered on the audience for its intelligence and
When more than 4,000 teachers stood and sung
"My Country ’Tis of Thee" the roof resounded
with the glory of the hymn and there was no need
of a leader,
We favor the plan so much discussed in Okla-
homa City, that of electing general officers of the
State Teachers’ Association by delegates named by
the Comity Teachers' Association. Allow one
delegate to 2s or 50 teachers per county and let
these meet the day before the general session
Under the present system of electing officers the
State Teachers' Association is a prey to designing
and ambitious persons and is subject to great
abuse by reason of the guessing contests of poorly
informed reporters who feel bound to serve up
Politics could have cut little figure in the elec-
tion of Superintendent Taylor to the presidency,
as not one teacher in live could learn anything de-
pendable of political alignment of the candidates.
The village teachers attended in great numbers
and composed 111 ihan halt the audience.
The teachers never failed to applaud the con-
solidated school and the rural high school when-
ever these were mentioned. They arc coming
The first half of every speech or address was
greatly enjoyed by the thousands who thronged
the auditorium; the second half found the audience
so worn, by reason of many diversions in the form
of long musicals, readings, etc., that guests of
honor were greatly embarrassed or were forced to
cut down their address to save the weary audience.
It was due to such conditions alone that Dr.
Boyd, former president of the State University,
was crowded off the program.
Oklahoma will be richer in thought and cul-
ture ami material wealth for years to come be-
cause of the addresses delivered by Dr. Craighead,
President of Tulane University, New Orleans,
Louisiana; by Dr. Hughes of Toronto, Canada;
and by Governor Ayecock of North Carolina.
These were visitors of note, and merit high places
in the esteem of all teachers.
Superintendent Butcher of Enid favored the em-
ployment of men as teachers for nearly all grades
as a result of a visit to Germany.
The many sessions of special sections were
highly profitable. This feature can be developed
with great benefit to the educational work. Mem-
bers of the A. & M. College took an active part in
these section meetings of the convention and re-
port a broadened outlook and new inspiration for
their work in the New State.
At the meeting of the section on Higher Educa-
tion, President Connell made an address; and was
elected president of the section for the coining

elected. Professor 11. H. Lane of the State Uni-
versity was elected president, and Professor C. E.
Sanborn of the A. & M. College, first vice-presi-

The Oklahoma A. & M. College at Stillwater
has stopped several outbreaks of hog cholera in
different portions of the State by inocculating
early the infected herds. The serum used is made
in the College laboratories. With hogs selling at
$8 or more per hundred this work is worth many
thousands to Oklahoma farmers. This is a great
discovery and a great service.
